Open London scheme

Open London campaign logo

In response to his commitment to improve the quality of life in London for visitors and those who live and work in the city, the Mayor has launched the Open London scheme.

There has been a 40 per cent decline in public toilets in the capital since 1999 and this scheme sets out to increase access to toilets across London by asking businesses to open up their toilets for people to use.

Participating businesses and stores

Asda, Austin Reed (Regents Street only), Borders, John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, and Viyella (Regents Street only) have signed up to the Open London scheme, which will let even more people know that they are welcome to use their customer toilets if they need to.

Open London will promote businesses that allow the public to use customer toilet facilities, where available and during opening times in London, without the need to make a purchase. Please see terms and conditions for additional details.
